A drinker has been banned for life from a bar after he tried to steal a condom machine, reports metro.co.uk. Miklos Antal told police he had “met a hot girl at the bar and needed condoms for later” and was also low on cash.
“So I thought I’d solve both my problems at once,” added the 28-year-old, who was caught at the bar in Nyiregyhaza in the north-east of the country.
Witnesses claim that Antal was seen attempting to hide the machine under his jacket, but they noticed that he was concealing something as he was trying to leave the bar and notified the police.
Hanging in there
One slip and Freddy Nock would plummet 10,000feet to the ground below, yet he takes the hair-raising stunt in his stride. Ock, a hire wire artiste who works for a circus, undertook this latest stunt near the Swiss mountain resort of St Moritz, reports the Daily Mail.
Using only a balancing stick, he walked down the cable of a funicular on Mount Corvatsch — 9, 908 feet above sea level. Nock, who starting learning acrobatic skills at the age of four, successfully completed the walk on his second attempt.
Not dead, drunk
A drunk man found lying on a park bench in his underwear survived temperatures of -5 C (23F) because of the amount of alcohol in his blood, reports metro.co.uk.
Aleksander Andrzej, 32, would have been nearly 30 times the legal limit for driving. He was spotted in the Warsaw park and taken to hospital by police.
A breath test showed he had 1,024 micrograms per 100ml, which doctors believe helped him live. He is expected to make a full recovery.
